What does a physio do?
Physiotherapists are pain and movement specialists! We diagnoses and treat according to people's injuries and pain, then help them to get out of pain and return to what they love doing. We've been doing it for over 100 years! In order to do this, the physio profession has adapted to modern medicine and continued research to expand its range of methods and approaches. This is a hallmark of my profession and it will continue to evolve to get the best results for our clients.
What should you expect at your first appointment?
In your first session, I will ask you some questions to understand the nature of your injury and gather any relevant history, perform some movement tests and then use this information to diagnose your injury and work out how to move forward.
In the next step, hands on treatment will commence and additional options will be discussed. A home exercise program will be tailored to you and demonstrated.
To save time, please download and fill in the new patient form before your visit. An electronic copy is also sent if you book online and will automatically upload saving paper!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them at any time.
What should you bring?
Please bring any relevant scans, referral letters or documents.
Comfortable easily-removed clothing is advised to make it easiest to inspect the injury and begin treatment. Shorts and singlet top are recommended.
How long do appointments take?
First appointments generally take up to 45 mins while follow up sessions are allocated 30 mins.
Do you need a referral?
As a first contact physician, no referral is required to make an appointment.
I happily accept:
EPC (Medicare) referrals
DVA (Veterans Affairs)
Third party insurance claims
Where to park?
Currently street parking is available. If wheelchair access is required, please let me know in advance.
